Happy Thursday!

I can’t believe that January is almost over, it just went by TOO FAST! I know I’ve been quiet here on the blog, but I’ve been working on projects that I just can’t share yet. I can however finally share my first two blocks for the Clementine Quilt Along with the Fat Quarter Shop! But before I do, let me tell you a little more about this quilt along.

Every year, Fat Quarter Shop hosts a charity quilt along in which they post monthly patterns on their blog in exchange for a donation each time a quilter downloads their pattern. They also auction off a completed charity quilt where 100% of the proceeds go to the chosen charity for that year. This year, all the proceeds from the Clementine Quilt will be donated to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Moda and Fat Quarter Shop are donating $10,000 each and the goal is to raise $40,000! If you would like to make a donation, click HERE.

The Quilt Along will run from January to July, with one pattern coming out each month for 6 blocks and a finishing pattern to make the quilt. If you would like more information to quilt along with me and an amazing group of quilters, make sure to check out the Fat Quarter Shop Clementine Quilt Along landing page HERE.

I decided to work with the kit from Fat Quarter Shop and boy am I glad I did! The “Mama’s Cottage” collection by April Rosenthal for Moda Fabrics is perfectly bright and happy to make even the grayest day full of sunshine! (I am in California, but oh is it windy and overcast today! I think there is some type of storm coming in….)

The first two blocks are identical, just different in size. The smaller block finishes at 12″ x 12″ and the larger block finishes at 20″ x 20″. For Fat Quarter Shop’s Month 1 blog post, click HERE. 

I’m really looking forward to the next pattern to be released so I can add the next block to this duo!
